    Troubles applying ramp gradient to an extruded shape (created from vector layer - AI import)

    JulietteLo

      Hi all,

       

      I'm a newbie when it comes to AE so please bear with me.

       

      I'm trying to create a ray-trace similar to this tutorial: After Effects 3D Logo Animation Ray Traced - YouTube. However, I wanted to add a logo as well.

       

      I have created the logo in AI (without any gradient colours, just plain white fill) and when imported, I created a shape from this vector layer. However, when I go to apply a ramp gradient effect, nothing happens, no matter what colours or tweaks I try. Is there something obvious I'm missing here at all?

       

      Any help would be much appreciated.

       

      Thanks,

      Julie
